Go Suns and great pod

This pod is well produced. Great balance of fun and Suns analysis. Very talented crew.

PHNX

Love this show. Been a listener for a while now, content is always fun. I love that they’re not afraid to drop the occasional F-Bomb. The panel is great, they know the team. The panel knows ball. It’s a fun listen compared to most sports journalism podcasts.

austinjmoyer ,

Fantastic show!

As a Phoenix native I can see the impact the suns have and how they have an important role in our city’s/states culture. Shows like this one really do a great job of being the perfect mix of entertaining and informative with their content so guys like me, who aren’t diehard basketball fans, can learn more about the suns. Keep up the great work!
